What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

"He was sent here to kill you, wasn't he?" Glo's voice emerged in a whisper of horror.

Tate drew in a breath, and even Knox looked away as Tate nodded.

Oh, she knew it. Apparently, she had a type.

The kind of men who didn't care what trouble—or death—might be waiting for them. Who turned their face to it and charged ahead.

The kind of men who died for what they believed in.

The kind of men who would break her heart.

*Susie writes a delightful story! - NYT bestselling author Dee Henderson.*

Susan May Warren is the USA Today best-selling, Christy and RITA award-winning novelist of over 65 novels, including the best-selling Montana Rescue and Montana Fire series.

Bodyguard Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker

Maybe it's his propensity to get entangled in other people's problems. Now, he's in over his head because he's desperately in love with the woman he's tasked to protect, the beautiful Gloria, "Glo" Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running, and Tate will do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means letting her go.

Country music artist Glo Jackson isn't afraid of trouble…

Stubborn and brave, Glo isn't about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won't cost her heart. She's already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she refuses to fall for a man who might die, especially because of her. Better to keep him away, even if it means sacrificing her heart.

But when danger threatens them both, what will they sacrifice to keep each other safe?

As the presidential campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But what will it cost Tate to keep her alive? And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man she loves?

The gripping second installment of the Montana Marshalls series.

In book two of Susan May Warren's Montana Marshall's series we get to know more of the Marshall clan and we get an up close and personal look at Tate Marshall. He's the troublemaker of the family, but is he really? Ms. Warren crafts Tate as a family member who feels like he's not good enough and he has to prove himself to everyone, even himself. The heroine Glo feels the same way which allows for sparks between Tate and Glo as well as the supporting characters. Susan May Warren is known for the action, danger, mystery and romance she packs within her stories, and Tate is no exception. I found myself having to stop and catch my breath several times between the action and the kisses. I particularly like the thread of how we've had God's attention before we were even born we don't have to do anything to gain it. "Heaven sees you, Glo. You don't need to do anything to get God's attention. You had it before you were born." - Gerri Marshall I didn't get Knox read prior to reading Tate and I wasn't lost. Ms. Warren gives us enough backstory to not make you feel lost. However, with the glimpse she gives within the pages of Tate it's clear that you will want to read this series in order. I really enjoyed this book. The political parallel was the only thing within the story I could've done without.

What a great addition to The Montana Marshalls series! And I definitely recommend reading these books as a series. The main characters in this story, Tate and Glo, had their beginnings in book one, Knox. Now, readers really get to dig in to the heart of Glo and Tate’s feelings for each other, and all of the other drama and danger that comes along in the second story of the series. That Glo! She was so emotionally mixed up in so many different ways. I have to say that all she put Tate through made me like his character even more than I already did. I really felt for the guy and the heartache he went through. But he was devoted! The secondary story in this book revolves around Ford and introduces his love interest, Scarlett. I really enjoyed getting to know these two characters, as well. I am enjoying this series so much and highly recommend it. I received a complimentary copy of this book, however, I have also pre-ordered my own print copy of this story, as well. All opinions are my own.

INTENSE!! TATE (Montana Marshalls Book 2) by Susan May Warren can best be described in one word - INTENSE! It’s almost if you look up the word “intense” in the dictionary, you would discover Tate’s photo next to it alongside a copy of this book! Tate’s INTENSE about: 1) his loyalty to his family (even though he never feels he measures up to their standards), 2) his loyalty to his friends, 3) his responsibilities as a bodyguard (especially when it comes to protecting Glo, superstar singer & daughter of a Senator/Presidential hopeful), 4) never losing focus while on a mission (whether it’s a bodyguard mission or a Ranger mission) and 5) solving the mystery around who is trying to kill the woman who has stolen his heart. Warren has written an INTENSE plot from the first page to the last! She has written the perfect story to totally display Tate’s complete character. She also manages to add a supporting cast that makes this a dynamic read. Be Warned: You will want to read it in one sitting! Tate’s intensity comes from not believing he is worthy of the love others because he doesn’t measure up. That’s why my Favorite Quote from TATE is: “When you show up with nothing and discover that you’re loved because of who you are—that’s when you realize what it means to be a son of God… It’s pretty breathtaking…” I was provided an ARC of this book by the author and SDG Publishing.

Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit into your family? Everyone has a purpose. I’ve felt that way before. I was the only blonde-haired, blue-eyed, left-handed one in the family. It was nothing I did which made me feel this way, it was just how I was made. However, as the years went by, I was shown by my family how they really did love me, and I was introduced to the One who loves me the most. If you’ve ever felt this way too, then you’ll understand what Susan May Warren’s characters in this story go through. There are a couple of characters who fight with the feelings of low self-worth and struggle with knowing their purpose. Sometimes through family dynamics, sometimes because of events in their past. This book has touched my soul deeply. I have found, anytime I pick up a book written by Susan May Warren I will get many life lessons. She has a beautiful way of speaking truth to our souls through her words. An example of this is a quote from the book spoken by the oldest brother to Tate the main character: “When you show up with nothing and discover that you’re loved because of who you are – that’s when you realize what it means to be a son of God. That’s when you discover that you’ve inherited more than you could possibly imagine. It’s pretty breathtaking . . . Sort of like free-falling, knowing that your chute is going to catch you.” We can all have this feeling if we give our lives to God. Susan May Warren’s stories are full of action, drama, a bit of suspense, and of course, romance. I am totally enjoying getting to know this whole Marshall family. I wish I could meet this very larger than life family from Montana. I think I’d love to have them as friends. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I'm at a loss to have words eloquent enough to convey the depth of emotions and feelings I get each time I pick up one of Susan May Warrens' books. Whatever Ms. Warren writes I'll read because I know I'll be captivated and blessed in a way that is life changing. I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review, all opinions are my own.

A great story My rating is 4.5 stars Strong, heroic men fighting to prove themselves. It is a common theme with author Susan May Warren, and yet each of her stories is fresh and unexpected. Tate is the troublemaker of the family and has a less than admirable past. He has felt inferior to the other men in his family since he was a young boy because he doesn’t like horses and has no desire to be a cowboy. His protective streak is a mile wide and he is consumed with anxiety at the thought of having Gloria hurt on his watch. Again. I mentioned above that Tate’s past is ugly. If you read Knox, you saw the hints of that already. I really liked that he had to reconcile himself with the fact he didn’t have to be a hero to be loved by God. Gloria’s lesson was similar. It is so easy to fall for the lie that it is up to us to be good enough. To live up to expectations of being perfect. That we have to EARN love. But that isn’t what love is about, is it? I enjoyed the unpredictable nature of Tate’s story and the continued mystery regarding the threats to Gloria. I won’t say that I was surprised about the revelation yet I doubted my guess at least a few times along the way. The combination of intense action and deep heart matters made for a great escape from the crazy week I have had!

'Surrender is not a Ranger word. Fine. Let the battle begin.' Susan May Warren continues her Montana Marshalls series with the second brother, Tate. Tate has always found trouble easily, but he has also always tried his best to solve problems. The woman he's tasked with protecting, Gloria Jackson, also the woman he's in love with, and daughter of a senator is targeted. Glo is a member of a country band, the Yankee Belles, and in the public eye, which makes her a bigger target. Glo doesn't want to hide from these threats and Tate is determined to keep her safe. She's also trying to run from Tate because she's already lost someone she loves to danger, so no way is someone else going to die because of her. We also meet another Marshall brother in this book, Ford, and I am on pins and needles waiting for his story, which is next. Will Tate stop a minute and listen or will he plunge right in and do what he thinks is best, even if may not be? He needs to learn that he is loved just because he's Tate and not because of what he does. And Glo needs to learn that she's also worth loving just because of who she is also. I am a forever fan of Warren's books and can't wait to get my hands on them. She dives into the story with no holds barred and takes her readers along for the ride and we can't release our breaths till the end. She knows how to make the reader one with the character and we feel everything. I love it when an author engages me this way. I purely love it. And the spiritual depth to her novels is amazing. Highly recommended. *My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

This is book two in the Montana Marshalls series. The book picks up right where the first book (Knox) left off. I highly recommend reading the books in order to get some of the backstory for the series. Each book introduces you to the characters in the next book and provides background for their relationship as a well as a cliffhanger to lead you in to their story. I don't normally enjoy cliffhangers but these are more of a set up for the next book. The central story of each book is completed leaving only the underlying plot of the series to carry through. I love how Susan May Warren dives right in to this book and the suspense doesn't let up, right down to the last chapter. This book follows Tate Marshall and Glo Jackson. Tate is serving as Glo's bodyguard while her mother, a senator, is on the campaign trail. Both Tate and Glo are struggling with past loss - Glo fears losing someone else she loves and Tate fears failing to protect those he cares for. Each must learn to turn to God if they're to have a future together. Susan May Warren does an excellent job of delving into each character's personality - following each as they grow and change throughout the book. We really get into the mind of each character and see what they are thinking and how they perceive the world around them. I love how Susan May Warren develops family relationships. Each book in the series draws you further in to the Marshall family. Reading her books are like coming home and meeting familiar friends you haven't seen in ages. We are introduced to Knox and Tate's younger brother Ford in this book as well. I can't wait to see how his relationship with Scarlett develops in book three. This is a fast-paced book full of suspense, romance, political intrigue, and drama- you won't want to put it down. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.

Tate, the second installment in award-winning author Susan May Warren’s Montana Marshalls series, is a must-read for fans of action-packed contemporary romance. Readers have been eagerly anticipating the release of this novel after falling in love with former Ranger turned bodyguard Tate Marshall in the first book of the series. Tate is willing to do anything to protect those he loves, and trouble always has a way of finding him. The cover of Tate depicts his character perfectly and will have readers discovering their new favorite book boyfriend. The Montana Marshalls series has the perfect blend of romance, adventure, and of course, those handsome Marshall family cowboys! It is highly recommended that the Montana Marshalls series be read in order, since there is an overall story arc that follows throughout the entire series. The novel Tate continues part of the storyline from the first book in the series Knox, as Tate works as a bodyguard for Glo Jackson and her band, the Yankee Belles, after a bombing following one of their performances. Additional violence and threats continue to put their lives in danger. Glo’s mother Senator Reba Jackson is a potential presidential candidate and continued threats against her campaign have also targeted Glo. Navy SEAL Ford Marshall plays an increased role in this novel, as he assists his brother Tate in trying to find the bomber. Susan May Warren is a master at writing incredible family-centered novels that draw readers closer to their faith. She shares the spiritual message that we are enough because He decided we are. Readers will enjoy the banter between Glo and Tate and the realistic dialogue throughout the novel. The pain that bodyguard Tate feels while protecting Glo as she goes on dates with another man is heart-wrenching as readers hope for Tate to get his happy ending with the woman he loves. There is a cliffhanger at the end of the book that leaves readers anxiously awaiting the next book in the series, Ford, which releases in September. Tate is highly recommended for fans of contemporary romance with a blend of adventure, and readers who enjoy novels by authors such as Becky Wade and Denise Hunter. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine. After reading the e-book copy, I enjoyed Tate so much that I also pre-ordered my own paperback copy.

After falling for Knox, I was pretty excited about Tate, and it was really a great read! Tate, the trouble-finder of the Marshall family, has a past scarred with regrets and mistakes. Glo, the daughter of Presidential-hopeful Reba Jackson, has lived her life trying to make up for the fact that she was the daughter that lived. Grief and guilt are common bonds between these two wounded characters, and neither one knows how to make the future work in their shattered worlds. But when a terrorist group targets Glo and her mother on the campaign trail, Tate will stop at nothing, even their growing feelings, to protect her. This book was quite good, and once again, Susan May Warren crafted a story of broken people, impossible circumstances, and powerful love that was an absolute pleasure to read. With dynamic characters, a thrilling storyline, and hope-filled themes, Tate is a fantastic read, and Highly Recommended!

Tate is book 2 in Susan May Warren’s Montana Marshalls series. Each book features a member of the Marshall family and brother Tate who played a strong supporting role in book 1, Knox finds himself the hero here. Still acting as Gloria Jackson’s bodyguard with restrictions, Tate is determined to keep her safe from the group who will do anything to keep her mother from running for President. But who are they and could everyone be mistaken about who is responsible for the attacks? I’m two books in and it is already obvious that this is one series that readers will want to read every book in order. Other family members play strong roles in both books and I felt that I was getting some hints about what is to come in later installments. It has also become apparent that each of the siblings has mistakenly believed themselves inferior to at least one of the others for some reason and have made life choices in an attempt to prove themselves worthy. If only they could find their worth in God’s eyes! I think that is the message the author is trying so hard to get across in the story and to her readers. As in most of Warren’s books, Tate is a balanced blend of action, danger, mystery, suspense, faith, and romance. Characters grow during the course of the story and do not remain stagnant. At times I found myself frustrated with both Tate and Glo as their relationship experienced many ups and downs, some of which seemed so unnecessary. It was fun meeting more of the Marshall family and I look forward to getting to know them better in their own book. My expectations were thoroughly satisfied and I recommend Tate to all fans of Susan May Warren and to any reader who enjoys action-packed, suspense-filled contemporary romance with bigger than life heroes. I voluntarily reviewed a digital copy of this book provided by Just Read Tours. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

Tate is the second book in the Marshall series by Susan May Warren. This is an absolutely AMAZING romantic suspense book (and series)!!! Ms. Warren does it again with a book that will make you want to stay up all night to finish reading it. I have read most of her books and love them all. I would not have thought that her books could get any better, but this series is becoming one of my favorites! I can not wait for the other three books to come out! This book focuses on Tate, one of the Marshall siblings. If you have read Knox (the first book in this series), you would have learned about Tate in that book (this can be read as a stand-alone novel if you haven’t read the first book). This book further expands on what is known in Knox. Tate begins by being a bodyguard for Glo who is a part of a singing group, The Yankee Belles, and daughter of a presidential candidate. Together they seem to have this connection, but there are so many obstacles that seem to be in their way. Tate also has issues that he needs to deal with from his past choices. Glo has her own fears as well. This must-read book allows the reader to see how God can help them deal with these issues and fears. This book has many twists and turns throughout and will leave you guessing what and who is behind everything. The next book in the series focuses on Ford and you will get to know his character better as well. I highly recommend you read this book and the first one in the series! You will not be disappointed! I am looking forward to reading about Ford next!

"Surrender is not a Ranger word. Fine. Let the battle begin." Oh, my goodness. Susan May Warren ramps up the action and romance with each new book and series. After reading Knox, the first book in the series, I didn't think I could love any other Marshall sibling more than Knox. Then comes Tate with his broken, regretful past clamoring to shut down his bone-deep bravery, loyalty, devotion and desire to protect. He's impulsive, yes, but knows how to love deeply and to love the person for simply who she is without inflated expectations. As a former Army Ranger and now a bodyguard, he's got a lot of baggage... but so does Glo, who uses her feistiness to build a thick wall around her heart. Despite the privilege, wealth, and fame as an up-and-coming country singer and the daughter of a senator on her way to the presidential race, Glo gets lost in other people's lives and almost doesn't realize who she is until Tate. If you are a fan of Susan May Warren's books, you will absolutely love this book. If you've been waiting anxiously for this second installment of the series, you will be totally satisfied.... except now you'll be anxiously waiting for Ford's story. If you've never read Susan May Warren's books before, The Montana Marshalls series is the one to pick up; she will dazzle you with fun and sassy dialogue, raw emotions, intense action, fast-moving plot, and real and touchable characters who will take residence in your heart. AND this book introduces Ford and RJ, the youngest twins in the Marshall family. Ford, a Navy SEAL, and RJ, the CIA agent, promise great action-packed stories of their own to be released soon! This story also ties in Reuben and Gilly's story from the Montana Fire series, Reuben being the oldest Marshall sibling. Though I haven't read the Montana Fire series, it was good to get acquainted with him and his fiancee. A top pick for your summer read! I received a copy of the book via JustRead Publicity Tours and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

TATE is the second book in the Montana Marshall Family series and fans will want to read Knox first although there is enough backstory in TATE that the reader won't get lost. Not being a fan of military novels some parts of the story was skimmed, but they are necessary parts for the shaping of both who TATE and his brother Ford are. I didn't want to put TATE down! I read most of the weekend to finish this book, on the edge of my seat. Both TATE and Glo are hurting broken people, needing God's healing touch. Big brother Reuben (from a previous Smoke Jumpers series) is there to speak words of truth. For more conservative readers there is some drinking, dancing, and violence. The action is nonstop, the characters heart-breakingly real, and the writing superb. Be sure to set apart a day or two to read the book in a sitting or two. I can't wait until Ford releases in September! There is enough of his story to wet the appetite for more. You will want to read this. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

“” he was both dangerous and safe and exactly the man she’d waited for” Wow! This novel is so full of tension and suspense that I had to stop and catch my breath - often. I loved Knox and now I think I love Tate and wait - I also love Ford. These Marshall men are the bomb – literally! Susan May Warren masterfully layers love and suspense. Her heroes always fall hard and that love becomes their driving force. Tate is superbly written and filled with heart touching moments. Not only is this book about Tate and Glo but it pulls you in to Ford and Scarlett’s story. I recommend it highly! Now I can’t wait for Ford’s story!

Wowza! What a thrilling read! I have been a fan of Susan May Warren's books since I read Take a Chance on Me, the first book in the Christiansen Family series, and I have been hooked on her writing ever since! As soon as I heard about this series I instantly knew I wanted to read it, so needless to say when I was given the opportunity to sign up to review Tate I jumped at the chance. After absolutely loving the first book in the series I had pretty high expectations for Tate and I am thrilled to say that this book exceeded every single one. The suspense was amazing as usual and kept me glued to the page! I absolutely loved Tate and Glo. They each carried deep scars from their pasts and my heart broke for all they had been through. I was cheering them on from the start! As much as I loved Glo and Tate, I think I actually loved the secondary characters of Ford and Scarlett a tiny bit more. I'm not really sure why because we don't really have anything in common, but for some reason I found myself really relating to Scarlett and wishing she was real so I could reach out and ask if she wants to be friends! And, oh my, I am loving all these Marshall men, but I think Ford just may be my favorite Marshall brother so far, so I CANNOT WAIT for his story! This book has everything I expect from one of Susan May Warren's amazing novels, nail-biting suspense, swoon-worthy romance, well drawn characters that become like friends to the reader, humor, family, and last but most definitely not least a faith message that is deeply moving without being preachy! There is just something about Susan's books that never fails to make me smile, and I always find myself hating to leave the pages of her fictional worlds, Tate was no exception! I loved every moment of this book and am dying to read book three, Ford! Highly, HIGHLY recommended! This is one series you aren't going to want to miss, but I would recommend starting with Knox, as Tate starts right where Knox ends! I received an ebook copy of this book from the publisher which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.

What a great addition to the series Montana Marshalls. I loved Tate and Glo’s story. I recommend reading book one, Knox, for background. Fans of inspirational suspense and Ms Warren’s book will not want to miss this one. I received an arc from the publisher and this is my unbiased review.
